Use the keyUse the key.

The S-Type key hole is above the center of the license plate between the two plate light lenses. It almost looks like a screw head. You will have to angle the key upward to insert it into the lock.



Open the back door and take out the passengers back seat.

now how to do that?right.

just hold the bottom of the seat and shake it until it get off.

put the bottom of the seat as far as you can on front seats.

you can't take it out because the seat belts are holding it.

now take a screw driver and unscrew the screws that are holding the back side of back seats they are all located on the bottom (don't worry it's little hard but you can do it so keep it up)now try to pull the back of the seats and with a flashlight

try to see inside the trunk. On the right and left there are two back seat release pulling wires (NOTE:TWO RELEASE WIRES TO OPEN THE BACK OF THE BACK SEATS ONE ON LEFT FOR LEFT AND ONE ON RIGHT FOR RIGHT)now try to reach one of them.

Ones you pull on it the back of the seat will be released now pull the other wire too, to release both sides.Ones they are down enter inside the trunk and fold the trunk carpet back now you can see the battery. With the car battery buster bust the battery (be careful the top one is Negative(-)and the bottom one close to you is positive(+) don't mix them if not it will catch fire try to see the +/- signs on the battery before plugging it ones buster plugged and power on the lights will be on now go to the driver seat and press the trunk release button it will open the trunk

in case it doesn't work try to start the car and keep pressing the trunk release button it will open it.Don't try to give a bust to the Jaguar s type fuse box located on the left of the engine under the front hood it can burn your electric system.(THE SAFE WAY TO DO THAT IS TO TAKE OFF THE FRONT RIGHT SIDE TIRE. IT'S LOCATED ON THE PASSENGER SEAT SIDE.ONES IT'S OFF TRY TO LOCATE THE ALTERNATOR ON THE ALTERNATOR THERE WILL BE A PLACE LOOK LIKE A SCREW PUT THE (NEGATIVE (-)BLACK WIRE TO THE METAL AND THE (POSITIVE(+)RED WIRE OF THE BUSTER ON THE ALTERNATOR SCREW AND TURN IT ON IT SHOULD TURN THE ELECTRIC SYSTEM OF YOUR JAGUAR S TYPE (ON)

if you have any questions for Jaguar s type you can see your local Jaguar dealer

ask him that you want to talk to a mechanic and ask the mechanic all your questions (when you don't use your Jaguar for a while take off the battery negative(-)black wire and positive(+)red wire it will help you a lot.I hope it will help

good luck
